GOSHEN — A woman was taken to IU Health Goshen Hospital on Thursday, May 16, after she was injured in a rollover crash west of the city.

According to a report from the Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department, Lindsey Henderson, 25, of Elkhart, was driving east on C.R. 32, west of Old C.R. 17, when she ran off the south side of the roadway, went down a ditch and up an embankment before overturning.

The car landed on its roof and caught on fire in the front yard of 22112 C.R. 32. Henderson had cuts, but she is still being evaluated at the Goshen hospital.

Ron Harrell of Goshen was driving on C.R. 32 when he saw what looked like a ball of fire. Harrell and three others who were passing by at the time stopped and helped Henderson get out of the vehicle.

Harrell said someone cut the seatbelt with a knife and Henderson was able to crawl out of the car. Two others brought fire extinguishers but were unable to stop the fire before firefighters got to the scene. Harrell said Henderson was breathing, though incoherent at times, before she was transported to the hospital.

 In this July 16, 2013 aerial file photo, the downtown of the city of Detroit is shown. Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr raised more than a few eyebrows a year ago when he took the city into bankruptcy and predicted it would be out by the time his term expired in fall 2014. Because it is by far the largest city to file for municipal bankruptcy and the issues were so complex many experts predicted it would take years to resolve. But the city will take a major step toward that goal with a trial in federal bankruptcy court that starts Tuesday, Sept 2, 2014. (AP Photo/Paul Sancya, File)
